Glynn said: “Purnells has always been a passionate about the city of Birmingham and we have been at the heart of the food scene for a number of years so, the opportunity to showcase what Purnell’s as a restaurant offers at the Great Hospitality Show, Birmingham, on The Staff Canteen Live stage is something Luke and I are really looking forward to.”
